Re: A few problems with 9742 Beta and 8800 GTS
I'm not quite sure how to check that. 1600x1200 is the first of my requested modes and I haven't done anything to explicitly select nvidia-auto-select. Except for the ModeValidation line now containing NoDFPNativeResolutionCheck, my current xorg.conf is exactly the same as the one attached in the last bug report log. I also get the same behavior with a plain nvidia-xconfig generated file, if I add the same NoDFPNativeResolutionCheck option.
The X-server definitely seems to think it is running at 1600x1200. A screenshot of my desktop is 1600 by 1200 pixels and xdpyinfo says:
dimensions: 1600x1200 pixels (411x311 millimeters)
resolution: 99x98 dots per inch
However, my monitor is displaying a downscaled version of that at 1280x1024. Have you encountered any kind of behavior like this before?
